Howard said the film will explore why the Beatles became so popular by examining the era’s social and political context using concert footage shot on movie cameras by fans and mixes of sound board recordings.
The film is being made with the cooperation of former Beatles Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney, as well as Yoko Ono and Olivia Harrison — the widows of John Lennon and George Harrison.MORE NEWS: COVID: San Francisco's No Vax Exemption Policy Could Keep Warriors' Wiggins Off Court
